CPD

The UKPHR expects that all registrants participate in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) preferably as part of a formal scheme, such as those operated for specialists by the Faculty of Public Health, Chartered Institute of Environmental Health or General Pharmaceutical Council. The UKPHR is working with the Royal Society for Public Health, the Faculty of Public Health and the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health to ensure that professionally-based accredited CPD programmes accessible to practitioners, are rapidly developed.

Evidence of a robust personal CPD programme outside of a formal scheme will be considered where a registrant is unable to access a formal scheme.

 

A public health professional is initially registered for five years. After this time the UKPHR Board will want to be satisfied that the registrant remains fit to practise. Appropriate recommended procedures for re-registration will be followed and all registrants should be aware that having been re-registered this will not negate the requirement of revalidation when introduced.
